LOCAL NATIVES – Sunlit Youth (Loma Vista)

For their third album the band have replaced strings with synths, and aim for a sound mid-way between ‘Gorilla Manor’s summery vibe and the downbeat despair of ‘Hummingbird’. The propulsive synth-lines on some tracks can give an anodyne sound, and could be by any band, but you also get classic tunes like ‘Coins’ and ‘Mother Emanuel’, which could only be from LN, so overall it’s no disappointment.
